What a week I've had!!!

First, let me say "HAPPY NEW YEAR" to everyone. I can't believe this is my first blog of the new year. I have had a few things to happen over this past week and most of them have not been all that great!

Well, let's start with last Wednesday. I had to repeat that dumb 3 hour sugar test to find out if I had developed gestational diabetes. I got my results the next day and I didn't pass. So, now I have to take a nutrition and diabetic class on 1/10 to learn how to eat so many carbs per day to control my insulin levels and sticking my fingers several times a day. Oh, what fun that is going to be!!!

Something good did come out of that day. I had another ultrasound and the baby looks great. The doctor is guessing that he is about 3 pounds at this point and I have 10 more weeks to go! They always guess my babies are large and they have been wrong each time! Jalen was only 7 lbs and Cameron was only 2 lbs 11 ozs, but he was 11 weeks early.

Me and the boys had to take my brother to the airport to return to California on last Friday and we were pretty down about that. He had been here in North Carolina since Dec. 15th. My kids only get to see their Uncle Chip twice a year and they love him to death!! So, we all had the sad face as left him at the airport. Cameron, the youngest, said "Momma, you left Chip", and gave me the nastiest look. I told the boys he would be back to visit again, because he loves them and that the new baby was coming and Uncle Chip had to come back to see the baby. Let's just say once I said the word McDonald's those sad faces changed.

Well, yesterday I was going to pick my son up from school and I got pulled over by the police at a check point and got my very first ticket! I have to say it was my husband's fault! He is suppose to take care of the cars, the yard, and the trash. Well, he failed to get my car inspected and the sticker was out of date. That damn ticket is $145.00! Can you believe that? The crazy thing is that the same dumb officer tried to stop me again coming back from the school - -Jackass!

Sorry about the sugar test, but glad the baby is doing well!

I can't believe you only have 10 more weeks!

Dang that sucks about the ticket! Ugh! Can't you just go to cour to show everything is up-to-date and then they will waive the ticket. That is what I did! ;o)

$145 dollars is a lot of yarn money!
